It’s cool when new country acts try to change things a little bit.
New act, Attwater, has a unique sound and their latest video is really cool The band is a little folky. They bring some California cool to the country world and I think they’re going to make some noise as word gets out about what they’re doing. Check out their latest video for Daydreaming…
Daydreaming – Attwater
Things get started out right away with the sweet playing of the mandolin. You don’t hear this instrument all that often in country. Every once in a while one sneaks it’s way into a hit, but not very often.
Attwater brings the mandolin and other unique qualities to their new song, Daydreaming. The song is about a girl that’s learning about life and all the things it has to offer. She’s seeing the world for all the amazing things it has to offer. She’w thinking about all the things she can accomplish and how wonderful life could be. It’s a great world; full of opportunity and happiness.
Sure, others out there will tell you things are great and there is nothing to look forward to, but for this girl the world is good. She’s always daydreaming and thinking about the perfect world. It’s refreshing.
I’m not sure what it is, but I really like what this duo is bringing to the table. They have an organic sound. There is soul in their music. This song, Daydreaming, has a little bluegrass mixed in with some back porch country mixed in with a little California songwriter rock. It’s a cool combination. It also helps that the lead singer, Erika, has a great voice.
This duo nails it. They’re not trying to be like anyone else in country music right now. They’re doing their own thing. Daydreaming is a simple song. There is nothing overly crazy about it, but it sounds different and for a new act that’s really important. Heck, for an established act it’s important to change and adapt. Music tastes change so it’s important to adapt or else you’ll be left in the past.
I like Daydreaming. I think it has an outside change to become a hit. People aren’t always ready for something completely new to take over, but I think this song is a little familiar and just close enough to what has been on radio and on the online video channels for a while that it’s got a shot.
What do you think of the new song from Attwater? I’ve been playing it over and over. It’s becoming one of my current favorite songs.
I’m just starting to learn about Attwater and their music. It seems they’ve just started their careers earlier this year and they’re ready to bring their music to the bigger audience in the country world.
